I didn't know this fixture existed until this afternoon so I don't think I asked about it, although I have asked a few T5 questions, trying to get first hand recommendations / experiences.

Sorry! If you feel as though you're answering with the same information twice, please don't respond. While I do want to have as much information and personnal experience recommendations as possible before making a purchase, I do recall what was said prior and don't need the same info twice.

Thanks!
Zoe

This fixture doesn't have halides... just 4 x 24W T5 and two moonlights. Don't like halides, personally

Look into the Nova Extreme Pro it is an 8 bulb t-5 ho fixture. It comes with legs but can be hung also.

I have 2 of the 130 watt 48' coralife CPs on my 75. Have had them a year now. They are built very well and have had no problem. I like that the 2 bulb light fixtures do not have fans. The T5s I looked at had a fan that made too much noise for my living room.
